Hello everyone! How are your preparations for New Year going? Are you ready to sequin in the New Year with the Style Not Age collective? We’re hosting a little party at home for friends; I still haven’t decided on what to wear yet, but this outfit is definitely in contention. It was my turn to choose the theme this month and it just had to be something sparkly.
I had numerous outfit options for this challenge – I’ve got four sequin skirts for starters. But I wanted something a bit more funky for New Year’s Eve, and it doesn’t get more disco than these sequin boots! I bought them in the River Island sale last Winter but haven’t worn them until now. Not content with one set of sparkles, I layered my sequin jacket over a plain black top. As I said in yesterday’s post, less is never more in my book!
I wore the jacket for a Christmas outfit three years ago, but with the more understated combination of boyfriend jeans and black heels. This time I felt like taking it up a notch by swapping blue denim for coated skinny jeans – the same ones I wore in Tuesday’s post.
While I’m not expecting it to be sunny on New Year’s Eve (certainly not after 3pm!) I added these silver glittery sunglasses for a bit of fun. They’re a bit too big and crazy for everyday wear, but I love having fun with accessories on the blog. Maybe I could get away with wearing them out with a plain black outfit. I’m betting my husband would make plenty of Dame Edna jokes though!
